brothers to take part in assassinate in the two love of sally that you are hiding in america apparently but as going that she can now report will most only a catalyst for fury that has deeper roots. the white house keeps saying it was just the anti islamic video that calms the muslim. rath across the world this is not a case of. protests to rectify the united states writ large or a us policy this is in response to a video that is offensive but that's a claim no one is buying it ministration wants us to believe it's not the administration's policies that have generated this behavior it's this one idiotic piece of so-called film which is what out there for two months well it is you know you think it's stupid film that nobody seen causes people to assassinate ambassadors to storm the embassy and the question the us media keep asking why do so many millions of hate the usa but the answers they're getting are the answers
9:03 pm
very few in the u.s. want to hear if you were to point to one thing that makes some muslims hate the usa it would be. hypocrisy over democracy. while america for the government now preaches democracy it has propped up authoritarian leaders but that's not the only accusation of hypocrisy that washington is facing there is also u.s. policy makers failure to condemn the violence when it suits their goals like the numerous terrorist attacks in syria washington seems to approve of them as long as they are targeting supporters of the government or another act of violence a rebel mob executing colonel qadhafi the u.s. secretary of state cheered at the news this week came restocked died that. washington's failure to condemn all violence equally has prompted radicals to take

an even more aggressive course if most americans understood what was being done in our name in the stabilizing the middle east and north africa they would be absolutely horrified what other result to me expect these people to have no hope their economies are destroyed they see their calling for foreign invaders of course this kind of thing is going to happen when the tragedy relieved. happened the international community wholeheartedly condemned the attacks on american diplomats but the us for its part has been quite selective in condemning violence it could be that the white house thought by supporting revolutions by fostering regime change they were winning hearts and minds in the muslim world but that doesn't appear to be the case for now the obama administration constantly refers to the film as the sole reason behind what's happening a reasoning which basically allows them to avoid addressing the deeper issues in washington i'm going to check on. france was also targets of the slick after french magazine published carriker troy's of prophet mohammad police in paris arrested

9:08 pm
there are comparing the footage on georgian for those with merit from guantanamo except. suspected terrorists while here we're talking about ordinary georgian inmates another factor irritating the public right now is the recent arrest of one of the foreign leaders so peacefully protest movement don't you think more young he was detained on saturday by traffic police or officially for not abiding to be a police orders he was put in prison for ten days but it is reported that he wasn't even the time the wheels off before stopped by the police early or to manage to meet the man who ordered all this video of was given to the crowd we used to be one of the senior staff members of the gurney prison in b.c. when the first really shocked me of these videos he also said that the interior minister filled the video himself and personally showed it to the president's. gushy all of this is definitely a huge call to be a major o.p.o. for you since the no action to call it is growing up on the first book tour there

did it for entertainment or if an inmate had something to do with politics if he was seconds from his enemy they would pick him this is tim is extremely politicized if you work in the prison system or in the police you must be loyal to the saakashvili regime no criticism is a lie you should either leave or they will get to. now news just then tension between beijing and has been sparked yet again this time to chinese patrol ship answer the territorial waters near the disputed senkaku islands and east china sea which of course japan claims ownership to the sound of has been brewing for almost a one a week mass protests have been held across both china and japan with some turn in fire. no never some of the spirited archipelago bots it sets up all the vast reserves of natural resources beijing also slammed the uys military activity in the

one hundred eighty people were detained as occupy wall street protesters market movements one year anniversary this week now activists descended on new york's financial district and tried to block the entrance to this it is stock exchange. and i was there for us. but i. have heard that the occupy wall street movement is here after its inception of takes the big apple by storm in full force i think five yet it is up more spec and behind barricades from the wee hours of the morning. marches and acts of civil disobedience all day long images that have become all too familiar throughout the past year reoccurring protesters thrown to the ground control there to document the action knocked down by. activists attempting to help others wrestled by police. arms twisted and cops left
9:13 pm
and right over a hundred and eighty people arrested in one day when there's no place for people to come outside and to meet each other and talk about issues when that is so dangerous that you get such severe violence at police repression that we don't really have a democracy for a year now occupy has fought for eradicating wealth inequality and social and economic injustice on us give people jobs give people education if you will help you you have to help the mess was no accountability for wall street bankers years after the comic collapse. that was now still has people outraged expecting it may be naive but demanding it is and it starts with making a statement and that's what the people here are doing skeptics had hoped that occupy camps which once flourished over the west but now have cleared out would put an end
9:14 pm
to the movement after months of camping out here in the financial district the body parts to what seems to be the peak of occupy hundreds of protesters are back here on the first anniversary of the movement to show that it's very much alive. the lack of encampments protesters say has not been an obstacle. we've really been able to focus on the issues that are important to us and that brought us out here in the first place of economic disparity and and a political system that no wrong longer represents people who don't have the money to compete and one of occupies key achievements so far triggering a national dialogue about what matters to the majority of americans the occupy movement has kept a dialogue around fairness and equality and access to the good things that we all want that should be available to everyone and that dialogue is now in the public the occupiers intend to do their best to keep this dialogue alive
9:15 pm
like the civil rights movement it would say that you know still has a long way to go. and it's been you know since before i was born i think occupy will have a similar history i think there's so much that has to be done that change is not going to be handed to us with a bow on it with no miracles just around the corner patience and perseverance they say are what will bring tangible change to the u.s. and. r.t.e. . turn a softer across her head says distorted things are making them a stay are a sponsor alcopops us with force. i think the occupy movement was a seismic shift not only in terms of the discourse but in terms of identifying the centers of power and how to respond to them i think we have to look at occupy as a tactic because the ruling class has responded exclusively in the language of force by trying to eradicate their race these are families rather than respond rationally hundreds of thousands of americans have lost their unemployment benefits
9:16 pm
there's been no attempt by the ruling elite to address the chronic under employment and unemployment this political paralysis is very dangerous because in an avid receives a backlash we're not guaranteed that or would be nonviolent or that it will remain inclusive in a way that the occupy movement has spent and there's a lot more still coming up here like the flood to the french quarter final things are getting. there quite responsible for this crisis and they should be more than the rest since they have more. but instead the bigger honors are bailing out some places where they don't have to share their piles of cash with anyone else. that's coming up for some compounds have been determined by brian's majority shiite population from campaigning for equal rights they were out of force again this week in their
9:17 pm
efforts to convince. the repression but it's in sake along for the police to move in with tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse the crowds and retain thousands of protesters says her campaign so-called twenty months ago around one hundred people have died for it seems have also targets of configures like opposition leader in the field her job has been jailed for taking part in rallies and stoking support as long as smith investigates the response from western nations though a strange to me compared to the deep animosity towards all others in the region. but i think i also find a light for the whole world on the nature of this conflict only oppression and brutality of the regime one day no matter how long it takes there will be a day of reckoning for this dreadful regime off in arms about syria and they put their money where their mouth is giving five million pounds in so-called non-lethal aid to those trying to oust president assad but less than

media since february last year there have been almost daily anti-government protests in the resulting crackdown around a hundred has been killed sixteen hundred in jail including sixty children and full of bahrain's most prominent human rights activists all that in a country of only one and a half million but the u.k. government says nothing to longstanding historical connection between britain bahrain which was in fact holland in seventy one certainly the association with the u.s. fifth fleet is the oil problem and that's the banking problem in the long term this is harmful to our interests because sooner or later all the gulf markets are going to disappear in a puff of smoke and then the regimes that succeed them will not be friendly to country which is their oppressors far from being condemned representatives of the bahraini regime has been

9:21 pm
only when they stand up in public and say we pose this torture we oppose these autocratic regimes and democracy only then will the british government have any credibility. at this moment. as. the bahraini opposition and their supporters aren't calling for intervention but they do want the international community to condemn the regime they say is at least as oppressive as the syrian regime that western powers are so desperate to get rid of. and now let's take a quick look at some other world news this hour at least one person has been killed in an explosion outside the whole time damascus the bomb head in the black bag exploded just meters from where an opposition conference was how the attack happened as the free syrian army recently announced it's moving its command center from the turkish border into syria itself. two separate sunni insurgent attacks
